Married husband is trying to get more land we deep in land debt .I want out so I have my own credit to get a house.
Ownership typically should not hurt or help your credit. It is the debt itself that matters. Even if you convey your interest, if your name remains on the mortgage and note, you are still liable for that debt. When conveying an interest in property, it is always best to have an experienced attorney handle it to avoid improper conveyance.See question
My mother just passed away after a long illness. She has about $5,000 worth of credit card debt. Am I required to pay this balance or is the amount null/void since she passed?
It depends. The creditors have to file timely, legitimate claims. Additionally, if the estate has unprotected assets that allow the claims to be paid, then the creditors must be paid. Contact an AVVO attorney with experience on probate matters. Working with the wrong attorney can lead to illegitimate claims being paid and/or unnecessary delays with the probate.See question

Once you and your siblings have been identified as the beneficiaries of the property, you may sell the property. The Statute of Limitations is very tricky when it comes to real estate. In the last few months, there was a recent court ruling whereby the statute of limitations only applies once the mortgage has reached its expiration date, which is generally 30 years. At that point, the SOL begins. It is best to speak with an experienced foreclosure defense attorney to ascertain your rights as one of the new ownerss. An attorney can also assist with the sale of the property to make the entire process easier for you and your family.See question
Can the defendent sue me for fees and his time after the judgment has already been made? He lives in NY and wants to bring this to NY to sue me. Is there any way to bring the case to FL if he is able to sue me?
Sounds like you just have a disgruntled opposing party. From what I understand, you have followed the law and have garnished wages based on a valid final judgment. That's legal.See question

Many homeowners make the mistake of not hiring an attorney while they are in foreclosure. Many beleive they can represent themselves. You are doing yourself a disservice. The issues you raise are not grounds for valid defenses as long as the lender meets the other more important criteria. Endorsement, holder of note and mortgage, originals to note, supporting affidavits, etc. Speak with a qualified, experienced attorney and that attorney will find the defenses that will help you. Simultaneously, a loss mitigation solution should be worked on to get you out of this situation.See question
